Airtel’s prepaid recharge plans have been revised to include a one-year Disney + Hotstar Mobile subscription. Upgraded prepaid plans start at Rs. 499 and go up to Rs. 2,798. These are priced higher than previous Airtel prepaid plans that came with the Disney VIP + Hotstar subscription – priced between Rs. 448 and Rs. 2,698. Along with Disney + Hotstar Mobile access for its prepaid customers, Airtel has updated its postpaid plans to offer over-the-top (OTT) service at no extra cost. Vi and Jio – the two other private telecom operators in India – also revised their prepaid and postpaid recharge plans with Disney + Hotstar Mobile.

Airtel’s list of prepaid recharge plans that now come with a one-year Disney + Hotstar Mobile subscription worth Rs. 499 includes Rs. Plan 499, which is the cheapest of the lot. It offers 3GB of daily data, “truly unlimited” voice calls and 100 SMS messages a day for 28 days. The benefits with the new Rs. Airtel’s 499 prepaid plan is remarkably identical to what the operator was offering with its Rs. 448 previous plan that came with the now defunct Disney VIP + Hotstar subscription. The Rs.

In addition to Rs. 499 plan, Airtel offers a Rs. 699 prepaid recharges on your Disney + Hotstar Mobile bundle plans. It brings 2GB of daily data, unlimited voice calls and 100 SMS messages a day for 56 days. The benefits here are also the same as what Airtel previously offered with Rs.

Airtel’s latest prepaid recharge plan to offer a one-year Disney + Hotstar Mobile subscription costs Rs. 2,798. It carries 2GB of daily data, unlimited voice calls and 100 SMS messages a day for 365 days. Airtel’s old plan with the same benefits for Rs. 2698 is no longer available.

Airtel Postpaid Plans with Disney + Hotstar Mobile
Similar to the review in its prepaid plans, Airtel began offering Disney + Hotstar Mobile with its postpaid plans. The Infinity Family plan is available at Rs. 499 per month and Family Infinity reaches Rs. 999 and Rs. 1,599. Telco also grants a one-year Amazon Prime subscription with its postpaid plans in addition to Disney + Hotstar Mobile subscription.
Customers who do not wish to use any of Airtel’s revised prepaid or postpaid plans can separately obtain Disney + Hotstar Mobile for Rs. 499 per year. Essentially, it comes as a replacement for Disney + Hotstar VIP and offers all Disney + Hotstar content, but can only be accessed on a single mobile device per subscription.
Like Airtel, Vi has also revised its portfolio of prepaid recharge plans to offer Disney + Hotstar Mobile annual membership with plans starting at Rs. 501. Jio also updated its prepaid plans earlier this week to offer OTT platform subscription starting at Rs. 499.
On Thursday, Airtel also hosted a virtual briefing to announce the demonstration of a cloud gaming experience on its 5G network that took place in Manesar, Gurugram. It was a part of the ongoing 5G testing using the sub-6 GHz spectrum allocated by the Department of Telecommunications. The operator partnered with French company Blacknut and brought in players Naman Mathur “Mortal” and Salman Ahmad “Mamba” to test the experience.
